As the decade draws to a close, let’s take a closer look at ten of the best NCAA Basketball head coaches of these past ten years.

Every year in NCAA Basketball brings us fantastic plays, great moments, and plenty of memories. In each decade, there’s ten times the excitement. These past few seasons have been no different, with countless moments we’ll not soon forget.

The 2010’s have come and gone, with players like Zion Williamson, Kemba Walker, Anthony Davis, and many more becoming household names in college basketball. We witnessed exciting dunks and buzzer beaters, we watched UMBC shock the basketball world, and we saw ten teams play their way to national championships. Each program had its great moments along with their miseries.

Among the highlights of this decade, we’re going to take a look at the head coaches. Many head coaches have had remarkable seasons, some moving onto bigger programs while others simply elevating their own for many years. We’ve seen mid-major coaches like Shaka Smart and Porter Moser have their stocks rise from postseason runs, while some of the biggest names in the sport continue to get the job done on a regular basis.

In our attempts to select and rank the top ten coaches of the decade, we aren’t following any specific criteria. Postseason success weights much more heavily than any other factor, though cumulative stats aren’t the most important thing. A coach with a few impressive seasons would rank higher than a consistent coach without postseason success. That being said, let’s dive straight into the list, starting with a name that didn’t even coach half of this decade.
